      Teaching Business Law

      Commonwealth Professor of Business Law Juliet Moringiello teaches a business law class. She is also the chair of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Business Law Section.

      Beginning this fall, students at Widener Law Commonwealth will have the unique opportunity to participate in the Pennsylvania Bar Association (PBA) - Widener Law Commonwealth Business Law Externship Program.

      The externship is designed to give students the opportunity to work with the PBA Business Law Section Executive Council under the supervision of Widener Law Commonwealth faculty member who serves on the executive council of the section.

      Commonwealth Professor of Business Law and chair of the PBA Business Law Section Juliet Moringiello stressed that the internship will provide valuable experiential learning experiences for law students outside of the classroom that includes legal writing and research and connecting with other business law professionals.

      "The externship will help students get a good inside view of what business lawyers do and how involvement with a professional organization can help them in their careers," said Moringiello.

      The externship requires students to research and review statutes promulgated by the Uniform Law Commission to assess their feasibility for enactment. They will also assist with the preparation of the Business Law Section's newsletter by researching and summarizing Pennsylvania's judicial decisions in business law disputes. Students in the externship will work with the section chair of the Young Lawyers committee to engage other young legal professionals in the organization.

      Each semester one student will be chosen for the two-credit externship, which is open to both regular and evening division students. Students who apply for the externship must meet the prerequisite of at least one semester of coursework towards the Business Advising Certificate.
